This tranquil setting is the outdoor sanctuary at Faith Garden.
Today is the day our country set aside to celebrate and honor good and caring fathers. A woman by the name of Sonora Smart Dodd thought of the idea for Father's Day while listening to a Mother's Day sermon in 1909. In Sonora's eyes, her father was a courageous, selfless, and loving man. Sonora's father was born in June, so she chose to hold the first Father's Day celebration in Spokane, Washington on the 19th of June, 1910. That is also the year that my father was born. This one's for you, dad.
Happy Father's Day, all!
